Beading is my joy, my passion, my love, my talent. I fell in love with beaded jewelry in 1942.
My mother, sister and I lived in Johannesburg, South Africa. Mother collected marvelous
African bead work. So off we would go to the villages with bags of beads, flour, sugar, small
round mirrors and fabric for trade. I can still see those beautiful brown bare breasted women
adorned with amazing colorful beaded jewelry.

The beaded jewelry is made with the ancient art of needle bead weaving that I learned from
my sister, Hanna. Using a special needle, thread and a variety of stitches, I add glass and semiprecious beads to other beads. Even though each piece takes a long time to make,
you can see that it is well worth the special time to create these original “works of art.”
Each piece takes about 8 up to 50 hours to make.

The beaded jewelry is much more than a beautiful adornment. When you wear my art as
jewelry, you have the opportunity to be empowered by a certain quality that I have imbued
in it. I encourage you to hang the beadwork jewelry on your wall so it can continue to delight
and empower you.

Since needle bead weaving is not messy, dirty, and toxic, I do all my beading in my living
room. Sitting on my couch looking out my window I see my luscious garden, a vast view of
rolling hills, and a brilliant blue sky. I take a few deep breaths to find my inner place of
peaceful stillness. Soon, I feel a familiar inner stirring which lets me know that my intuitive
self is ready to create - and so I begin to bead. I watch in delighted amazement as the colorful, gleaming beads create a jewelry form. I ask for a name and empowering quality. The name
jumps into my head and I sense an enhancing distinction. You can profoundly experience Exhilarating Eleanora Necklace uplifting your own self worth.

I often feel the dynamic enduring female link between the women of South Africa, my sister,
my beading students and all the women who choose my extraordinary wearable art beaded
jewelry. My passion is to share this with you and to inspire you in your own life!

A beaded one of a kind necklace, I call EXHILARATING - wearable art jewelry
